Building better facilities for your campus and community.

Healthcare Construction at RJM

Since 1997, we have provided construction solutions for new healthcare facilities, building additions, occupied environments, and even the most complex medical facilities. Our team has completed several million square feet of healthcare construction projects, including hospital renovations, family practice clinics, and the most sophisticated surgery, imaging, and emergency centers. 

We know that building today’s healthcare facilities requires clear communication, collaborative planning, and the team’s ability to remain flexible when project conditions change. We strive to think like you—the owner—to deliver efficient healing spaces that meet your goals and move patient care forward.

  • Extensive healthcare project expertise. 
  • Experienced, certified healthcare project team members dedicated to achieving the client’s vision.

RISK MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY

Balancing the Needs of Patients and Staff

We make it a priority to understand the needs of patients, families, and staff, and current and future building functions, then we work to balance costs with ongoing operational efficiency. The success of a project depends on how these differing needs are managed, which is why we thoughtfully consider all these factors in our planning.

Working in Occupied Spaces

We do a significant amount of healthcare construction within occupied facilities. Recognizing that patient care is ongoing, our projects involve careful planning and collaboration with design, construction, and healthcare staff. Our process includes assembling a project schedule that considers every detail from construction phasing to infection control risk assessment (ICRA) planning, and even inspection processes.

Disruption Avoidance

We have developed a new standard for temporary walls using the Starc System for public-facing temporary walls to reduce noise while improving air quality to adjacent spaces. These temporary walls provide a clean, professional look and make space appear finished, despite construction activities occurring on the other side of the wall. In addition to their professional appearance, the walls can be erected and dismantled much faster than traditional temporary wall systems. In a hospital setting, we’ve installed more than 300 linear feet of Starc temporary walls in six hours, greatly reducing disruption to the fully occupied facility.

Attentive to the Patient Care Environment

Our field management and staff are certified and trained in Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) and understand the delicate requirements of working in occupied facilities, so we’re always closely monitoring safety protocols. Additionally, we know how to implement effective noise mitigation and the installation of temporary walls and dust containment systems.

THE RJM DIFFERENCE

A Dedicated Team

You can count on our healthcare construction team to be familiar with your campus, staff, quality standards, and expectations. In preparation for a project, we evaluate team member workloads to ensure they have the resources, capacity, and commitment needed to effectively complete the pre-construction and construction schedule without any conflicts. Then we provide an in-house preconstruction team to advance your project through efficient cost estimating, scheduling, and value management.

Continued Education

Our healthcare team is actively engaged in continued learning through the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) and our field staff is trained in ICRA awareness by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Also, several team members have earned the designation of Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) by the American Hospital Association. A national credential held by an elite group of healthcare construction professionals shows dedicated training on healthcare codes, standards, guidelines, and compliance initiatives.
